COLLEGE OF ARMS OF CANADA. 

By Edict of King Louis XIV. in 1664: Confirmed by Royal 
Commission of the Appeal of Malta of 1877. 



fa. J§L >««-. 



■.*■■ 






Under Council of ihe Aryan and Seigncurial Order of the 

Empire in America. 

Memoranda. 

I. 

This College of Arms is the Official Court of Heraldic 
Registry of America, wherein armigerous right and rank are 
established and where symbols are added to the arms of those 
proven under seal, that the true may be known from the false. 

On account of the prevalence of fraud in American an- 
cestry and arms, no claims of distinction thereby are accepted 
anywhere unless the titles by which they are held are guaran- 
teed by the Heraldic Court of the College of Arms. Costly books 
on "Famous Families of America" have thus become so worth- 
less by the admixture of the false with the presumably genuine. 
that their arms and rank are unworthy of notice, and if borne 
without warrant, are reckoned, in England and America, to be 
warrantless through inability to obtain the seal of the Com- 
missioners of the Heraldic Court and the symbol of authentica- 
tion of the College of Arms. 

II. 

No Heraldic Court will certify to descent from armigerous 
ancestry unless probative proof is given. Circumstantial evi- 



S2 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

dence of bearing the same name and tradition of origin in the 
same locality, with official, gentry and proprietory condition 
in every generation of the family chain, are deemed worthy 
to give right to bear the same arms, but with a symbol of 
difference to show that the right, though conceded, is circum- 
stantial rather than documentary. 

In like manner, the College of Arms of Canada follows 
the same law by regarding the condition of the First American 
Ancestor as the criterion of his parental condition in Europe 
in the acknowledgment of traditionary and circumstantial 
armigerous descent and rank. 

Marks of Authentication. 
I. 
Families of the Baronets of Nova Scotia (signed for by 
the Earl of Galloway in 1908 ; of the Seigneurs of the Empire 
(represented by the Duke of Veragua) ; of the Bannerets of 
Quebec (represented by the Baroness Dorchester, who founded 
the Dorchester decoration of the order) ; of the Seigneurs of 
Canada and Louisiana (represented by the Baron de 
Longueuil) ; of the [Manorial and Titular Grantees of Amierica 
(represented by the Brents of Maryland, next of kin to Lord 
Baltimore) ; of the Equestors of the Yellow Rose, Knights of 
the Golden Horseshoe of Virginia ; of the Royal and Military 
Order of the Mountain Eagle, etc. — all confederated in the 
Aryan and Seigneurial Order — are granted a special coronet 
over the arms, and are eligible to the Dorchester Decoration 
of the Empire in the male line, family name of any of the 
above distinctions. So are those holding matriculation papers 
from the Heraldic Courts of the Seigneurial Nobility of Europe. 

II. 
First Ancestor to America before 1783, who used armorial 
seal or who was put on the list for Royal Provincial Council 
by order of the King, gives Consular rank to his family; to 
whose registered descendants of family name the Court decrees 
/he Consular Button of rank, with azure octofoil added to 
recorded arms. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 83 

III. 

First Ancestor to America before 1783, who was a landed 
proprietor and military or civil officer, gives Burgess rank 
with the button, and red octofoil to such arms as circumstantial 
evidence before the College decides. 

/ IV. 

First Ancestor to America after 178 3, who was a man of 
property and station, and acknowledged by signed and sealed 
letters of an armigerous family of Europe, duly recorded there 
to be one of themselves, gives to his registered descendant's 
of the name, the button of Alumnal rank, and the green octofoil 
of authentication is added to their registered arms. 

V. 

Those receiving the Button and Diploma of the Heraldic 
.Court of the College of Arms are armigers of the same, ranked 
with the Armigerous Nobility of Europe by international treat- 
ies of comity. Armigers of 16 quarterings are admitted to the 
Seigneurial Order and Decoration. 

Court Dress. 

The Seigneurial Order has its own Dress and Decoration 
of the Empire. The Armigers wear the conventional black 
dress, but with gilt buttons and epaulettes; dress sword; blue, 
red or green sash, rosette and button of Consular, Burgess or 
Alumnal Degree ; black felt hat with gilt band ; blue, red or 
green feather.

THE BARONETS OF NOVA SCOTIA. 

Their Family History and Armorial Bearings. 

From the Archives of the College of Arms of Canada. 

In 1611 all the country from Lund Island to the St. Law- 
rence had been ceded by King James to William Alexander, 
Earl of Sterling, who was created a Viscount of Canada. The 
land was divided into feudal fiefs called Baronetcies, the titles 
of which were conferred on these gentlemen of armigerous 
race who contributed one thousand pounds each, and who 
agreed on being invested with the title of Baronet, to occupy 
the fief in that Province and to sit in the Council of the same 
as a magistrate. 

In 1632, what part of this grant had not been occupied 
by democratic Puritans, was ceded to France by the treaty 
of Breda (Acadia), and did not become again the property 
of the British Crown until 1713 by the treaty of Utrecht. Be- 
tween 1632 and 1703 (when the last title of Baronet of Nova 
Scotia had been granted by Queen Ann, the last of the Stuart 
sovereigns), more than 125 Baronetcies had been created; but 
while their descendants bear the title of Baronet to-day in 
Britain, they are not fully and legally possessed of the same 
until they perform their duty in registering in Canada, accord- 
ing to the terms of the Charter of creation of the Baronets 
of Nova Scotia. On their registration in the College of Arms 
of Canada, they are at once eligible to the Council or Senate, 
with other Seigneurial and armigerous noblesse, and by special 
concession place over their shield a coronet of thistles alter- 
nating with eight balls argent, five being seen in front when 
emblazoned with the arms. 

The following are those families whose historical outlines 
have been collected. 



MACKAY OF FAR. 
Sir Donald Mackay of Far was made a Baronet of Nova 
Scotia in 1627, and elevated to the peerage as Baron Reay in 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 85 

1628. His wife was Barbara, daughter of Kenneth Mackenzie, 
Baron kintail. From him amongst his other descendants who 
bear right to the Order and the present title was Lieut.-General 
Alexander Mackay, Commander-in-Chief in Scotland in 1780. 

The family descend from Ode Mackay, who obtained ex- 
tensive territorial grants in Caithness and Sutherland in 1499 
and 1507. He was killed in the battle of Flodden and was 
succeeded by his son Donald, a very valiant and able military 
commander, from whom came in the fifth generation the first 
Baronet of Nova Scotia.

86 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

who was elevated to the peerage of Ireland where his family 
held lands, as Baron Gosford of County Armagh (1776), and 
Viscount Gosford (1785). His son Arthur was created Earl

^-sessor of all these titles.

OG1LVY OF INVERQUHARTY. 

Sir John Ogilvy of Inverquharty was made a Baronet of 
Nova Scotia in 1626. His wife was Ann, daughter of Sir 
Alexander Irvine of Drum. This family, like most of those 
noble families of Scotland that held honour dearer than lands 
and treasure and as the fount of their nobility, was legitimist 
in 1715 and in 1745. From him through illustrious and honor- 
able generations is descended the present Baronet of Nova 
Scotia, Sir Reginald Ogilvy, Hon. Colonel of the Forfar and 
Kincardine Artillery. 

The family traces its origin to the ancient Mormaers of 
Angus, one of the seven great hereditary chiefs of Scotland, 
who in the XI century were granted the feudal designation 
of Earl on the introduction of the Franco-Norman feudality 
into Scotland. Gilibride, Earl of Angus, tempo. David I 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 87

besides the Baronets of Nova Scotia descend the Earls of

NICOLSON OF CARNOCK. 

Sir Thomas Nicolson of Carnock, Baronet of Nova

been among the noblesse of Scotland as far back in feudal 
times as most of the great families. 

Arms. — Or, a lion's head between three falcons' heads, 
erased gules ; a bordure of the last. Seigneurial Coronet. 



LEVINGSTON, EARL OF NEW BURG. 

Sir John Levingston, a stanch Cavalier of King Charles I 
was made a Baronet of Nova Scotia in 1626. His son James, 
was elevated to the peerage of Scotland as Viscount Newburgh 
in 1647. For his self sacrifice and devotion to the principles 
of the constitution and monarchy during the Puritan usurpa- 
tion he was made Earl of Newburgh by King Charles II in 
1660. He married 1st, Catherine, daughter of Theophilus 
Howard, Earl of Suffolk ; 2nly, Anne, daughter of Sir Henry 
Poole, Her son Charles had a daughter and heir who married 
in 1724, Charles Radcliffe, 4th Earl of Derwentwater, which 
family gave such heroic testimony to its grandeur of soul 
by its noble sacrifice for the cause of legitimacy in 171 5 and 
1745. The Radcliffe family, which was of Franco-Norman 
origin, inherited the Baronetcy of Nova Scotia, from whenc it 
passed to the next heir Lady Ann Clifford, whose only child 
the Countess Cecelia married in 1757, Benedict, 5th Prince 
Giustiniani unto whose descendant this title of Baronet of Nova 
Scotia as well as that of Earl of Newburgh has passed. 

The Levingstons descend from a noble of North England 
who in 1070 came into Scotland and founded the Leving estate, 
called Leving's-Town. From him descended Sir John Lev-

DUNBAR, BANNERET OF QUEBEC. 

William Dunbar, was a Major beneath the Royal Standard

Act of 1789 of Quebec was entitled to an hereditary mark of 
Honour with the other military and civil officers who "joined 
the Royal Standard before the Treaty of Separation of 1783.'' 
This "mark of Honour" was determined by the Aryan and 
Seigneurial Order to be "Banneret of Quebec of the United 
Empire." He was son of Sir George Dunbar, Baronet of 
Nova Scotia of the Dunbars of Mochrum. He married in 
Canada, a daughter of the Count de Chambaud, and had two 
daughters, Mariel, who married George Selby, M. D., of Mon- 
treal, in whose line the title descends, and Jessy, married to 
Ralph Henry de La Bruyere of the Royal Engineers in Canada.

among other issue Andrew Elliot, Royal Lieutenant-Governor 
of the Province of New York. His eldest son, Sir Gilbert, 
3rd Baronet, married the heiress Agnes-Murray Kynynmound 
of Melgund. His son the 4th Baronet was Viceroy of Corsica 
up to 1797, Baron Minto and Governor-General of Bengal and 
Earl of Minto in 181 3, from whom descended the present 
Baronet and Earl who is Viceroy of India, having been the 
radical-liberal appointee to that position as well as to a former 
one of Governor-General of Canada, whose term of office was 
sullied by extreme subserviency to parliamentary radicals in 
signing the recall of the King's Commander, Lord Dundonald, 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 91 

at their clamerous instance, and thus ignorantiy lowering the 
prestige of the office which he held, at least, as nominal rep- 
resentative of the King. 

The family of Elliot originated on the borders between

border frays pro and con with the ebb and flow 7 of what 
fortune might bid for in the wars of the two countries in the

ERSKINE, EARL OF MAR AND KELLIE. 

Sir Charles Erskine of Cambo was made a Baronet of 
Nova Scotia, in 1666. He was Lyon King of Arms of Scot- 
land. Flis father was Sir Thomas Erskine of Gogar, Earl of 
Kellie, whose father, the 5th Lord Erskine was Guardian of 



92 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 

King James VI and Governor of Stirling Castle. Sir Alex- 
ander, the 2nd Baronet was also Lyon King of Arms for 
Scotland 1681. His wife was a cousin. Ann Erskine, daughter 
of Alexander, 3rd Earl of Kellie. Sir Charles Erskine, 6th 
Baronet of Nova Scotia, on the extinction of the direct line of 
the Earls of Kellie succeeded as the 8th Earl in 1795, and on his 
death, unmarried in 1799, his uncle, Thomas, son of Sir Charles 
the 6th Baronet, succeeded as 9th Earl of Kellie, since which 
time the succession has been direct to the present day. 

The family of Erskine, probably Franco-Norman like most 
of the feudal aristocracy, took their name from the lands of 
Erskine on the Clyde, which they held in feudal tenure as 
early as the days of King Alexander II. Henry de Erskine was 
Baron in 1220. From him came Sir Robert de Erskine, Grand 
Chamberlain of Scotland 1356, and Constable of Sterling 
Castle after 1368. From him came Sir Robert who was Earl 
of Mar in 1438, and from him came John, Earl of Mar, Sec- 
retary of State for Scotland in 1706, who raised the Standard 
for legitimacy and the Stuarts in 171 5. He was granted the

LYON FAMILY. 
Contributed by Dr. J. L. Miller. 

Bible records of Col. James Lyon, Sr., of Henry County, 
Va., now in possession of Mrs. Helen Deas of New York City, 
a daughter of Hon. Francis Strother Lyon of Alabama, shows 
the following-. 

"Col. James Lyon, born in March, 1736, departed this life 
the 29th Dec, 1817, in the 81st year of his age." (In Stokes 
County, N. C.) 

"Christiana Lyon (1st), wife of Col. James Lyon, died 
Feb. 23, 1784." 

"Maj. Stephen Lyon, oldest son of James and Christiana 
..Lyon, departed this life on the 20th of May, 1820, in Granger 
County, Tenn." 

"Humberson Lyon, departed this life the 20 July, 1793." 



110 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

"Sarah Lyon, second wife of Col. J. S. Lyon, departed 
this life 6th August, 1815, in Stokes County, N. C." 

"James Lyon, born in Henry County, Virginia, Dec. 25, 
1778, died in Stokes County, N. G, August 30, 1849. Son of 
Col. James Lyon." James Lyon, Jr., married in April, 1797, 
Behethland Gaines and had sons James Gaines Lyon and Fran- 
cis Strother Lyon, both of Alabama. 

Feb. 28, 1795, James Lyon, Sr., purchased a tract of land 
in Patrick County, Va. ; and Dec. 25, 1797, James Lyon, Sr., 
James Lyon. Jr., and Miller Easley conveyed the same to 
Gabriel Penn. No other Lyon appears in the Patrick records 
until in 1863 ^ le inventory and sale bill of the estate of a James 
Lyon was recorded. 

The Preston Register shows that a Stephen Lyon was 
killed by the Indians in 1754 on the Holston River, in Wash- 
ington County. He may have been a brother of James Lyon 
of Henry County, and may have been the father of the Ken- 
tucky Lyon emigrants. 

The Journal of Capt. Robert Wade shows that a James 
Lyon was a member of his company of men who made an 
expedition on New River against the Indians on Saturday, 
August 12, 1758. Perhaps this was James of Henry County, 
who at that time might have been a resident of Washington. 

. The old Fincastle surveys show that a Humberson Lyon 
had a survey on May 26, 1774, for 343 acres of land on the 
North Fork of Holston River, in what later was Washington 
County. The Military rosters of this county for 1 777-1782 
give the names of Lt. Humberson Lyon, Capt. Humberson 
Lyon (probably the same man), and Lt. William Lyon. Sum- 
mer's Hist, of Southwest Va. gives in a list of those killed at 
the Battle of King's Mt. the name of Lt. Humberson Lyon. 

THE KENTUCKY LYON FAMILY. 

Joseph Lyon, was settled on Lyon's Run, Mercer County, 
Ky., in Dec, 1775, when he with 83 other inhabitants of "that 
part of North America now dominated Transylvania" signed 
and sent to the Virginia legislature an energetic protest against 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. m 

the unreasonable demands of Col. Richard Henderson and his 
company, and praying to be taken under the protection of the 
government of Virginia. 

In 1785 he contributed to the erection of "New Provi- 
dence" Presbyterian church in Mercer County,, also to be used 
for school purposes. 

Sept. 26, 1803, Joseph Lyon and wife Jane conveyed to 
Ezekial Lyon, 80 acres "on Lyon's Run," Mercer Co., Ky. 
When this land came into his possession can not be learned. 
The 80 acres was but a part of the tract. July 24, 1803, Joseph 
Lyon purchased 250 acres on McAfee's Run, Mercer County; 
and July 22, 18 10, a tract of 150 acres on Lyon's Run. 

Sept. 18, 1833, John Lyon gave to brother Robert Lyon a 
quit-claim deed to their father Joseph Lyon's estate. 

Oct. 4, 1842, Joseph Lyon's heirs, viz.: Nancy Kennedy, 
Stephen, George, John, and Robert Lyon, by Commissioner 
made partition deeds to John and Robert. Stephen Lyon (my 
great grandfather) married in 1819 Anne Curran, daughter of 
James and Sarah McAfee Curran, and granddaughter of Rob- 
ert McAfee, the younger of the McAfee brothers, famous as 
early explorers and settlers in Mercer County, Ky. She was 
a niece of Gen. Robt. Breckenridge McAfee, who was Lt-Gov. 
of Kentucky i824-'28, a member of the two branches of the 
Ky. Legislature for twenty years, U. S. Minister to the U. S. 
of Colombia 1 833^37, etc. 

Ezekial Lyon, supposed to have been a brother of Joseph 
Lyon, was also settled in Mercer County for several years 
prior to 1800, though the deed for his first tract of land in this 
county is not of record in the county except when he conveyed 
it away later. Dec. 26, 1797. is the date of first deed Ezekial 
Lyon recorded in Mercer. However, his son David Lyon had 
a deed for 100 acres on Salt River, Mercer Co., Va., from Geo. 
& Susannah McAfee on Apr. 28. 1789. And Ezekial's son 
John Lyon had a deed for 130 acres in Mercer Co., Ky., from 
Heirs of Job Hale on May 26, 1795. 

Ezekial Lyon's will prob. in July, 1839, left good estate to 
wife, Martha and sons and daughters. Stephen, John, David, 



112 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

William, Polly Cochran, Sally Renear, Elizabeth Cochran, and 
Susan Lyon, and the children of a deceased daughter who had 
married Jos. McGee. 

The Mercer records contain much other data of the later 
descendants of Joseph and Ezekial Lyon, among whom the 
names of James and Stephen appear. 



HILL OF MIDDLESEX. 

In the "Baltimore Sun" of March i, 1908, an erroneous 
pedigree of the early history of the Hill family was published. 
The following data has been compiled from the existing records 
of the county: 

There were two families of the same name residing in 
Middlesex, viz. : Thomas Hill and his wife Ann, of whom we 
are about to speak, and a William Hill, who also had a wife 
Ann. What degree of relationship existed, if any, between 
these two men the records do not show. 

The "Sun" pedigree states, without the least attempt at 
authority, that "Thomas Hill married Ann Russell, who was 
descended from Sir William Russell, or John Russell, who 
came to Virginia about 1620." Such an assertion is ridiculous. 
There was no Sir William or Sir John Russell in Virginia at 
that date, or, in fact, at any other date. It is quite possible 
that Thomas Hill did marry an Ann Russell, as there was a 
family living in Middlesex of that name, and Thomas Hill's 
grandson was named Russell Hill. The "Sun" writer also 
states that Thomas Hill's father was William Hill. There was 
a William Hill who was buried in the churchyard of Christ 
Church 12 Feb., 1669, but there is no evidence that he was the 
father of Thomas. According to the parish register and the 
will and deed books, Thomas and Ann Hill had the following 
issue: 

1. Mary, born 14 Feb., 1678. 

2. Rebecca, born 30 August, 1682. 

3. William, baptized 20 July, 1684. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 113 

4. Rebecca (2nd of the name), born 28 Nov., 1686; m. 31 

Dec, 1704, to John Hughes. 

5. Isabella, born 1 May, 1698; m. 20 May, 1729, to John 

Jones. 

6. Richard, born — . 

Several of the early record books of Middlesex have been 
lost, and the will of Thomas Hill is missing. From the Court 
Order book we find that "Mr. Thomas Hill was a member of 
the county militia 23rd November, 1687." Richard Hill, a son 
of Thomas, left a will dated 18 Jan., 1731, probated 2 May, 
1732. He left no living issue, and devises most of his estate 
to his brother William and the latter's children. 

William Hill, son of Thomas and Ann Hill, married 7 
Sept., 17 10, Frances Needles. According to the "Sun," she 
was a daughter of John Needles and his wife Elizabeth Mann. 
This is a mistake. There is no record of the above named hav- 
ing a daughter Frances ; it was Mr. William Needles and his 
wife Dorothy who had a daughter named Frances, born 19 
March, 1690. (Par. Reg.) Issue of William Hill and his 
wife Frances: 

1. Thomas, born 20 May, 171 1 ; died 3 August, 1720. 

2. William, born 7 Nov., 1712. His estate was adm. by his 

brother Russell Hill, 2 Jan., 1759. 

3. Richard, born 15 Jan., 1714; died 23 Jan., 1714. 

4. Russell, born 23 Feb., 1717. 

5. Judith, born 2 June, 1719; married 22 Jan., 1738, to Wil- 

liam Booton. 

6. Thomas, born 17 June, 1722. 

7. Needles, born 12 August, 1725. 

8. Frances, born 26 Jan., 1727; died 30 May, 1746. 

9. Anne, born 25 July, 1730. 

Russell Hill, 4th son of William and Frances Hill, mar- 
ried 11 April, 1738, Anne, a daughter of Stokeley and Ann 
Towles of Middlesex, born 23 April, 17 19. They moved to 
what is now Culpeper and had issue: 

1. Frances, born 25 Feb., 1738; died 12 March, 1738. 

2. William, born — : married Mary Jane Wood. 



114 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

3. Henry, born 1743. 

4. Frances, 2nd of the name, born . 



Henry Hill, 2nd son of Russell and Anne Hill, died 12 
Sept., 1815. He married Ann Powell, J)qrn_io Marc h, 1752, a 
daughter of Captain Ambrose Powell, born 18 Sept., 1713, 
died 18 Sept., 1788; married 10 March, 1752, to Mary Bledsoe, 
who died to Jan., 1S02, a daughter of Captain William Bledsoe 
and Mary, his wife. Henry Hill served as Captain in the 
Revolutionary War from 1777 under Col. James Barbour 
(War Dept., File S, 7771). According to the family records, 
he was promoted to the rank of Colonel, and served under 
"Light Horse" Harry Lee. Henry Hill and his wife Ann had 
issue: 

1. Colonel Robert Hill, born 7 Oct., 1772; died 14 Aug., 

1824; married Judith Chapman and left issue. 

2. Frances, born 5 August, 1775; died 1853; married Henry 

Field and left issue. 

3. William, born 11 May, 1779; died 10 July, 1803. 

4. Henry, born 5 October, 1782; died — - Feb., 1846; married 

Mattie Payne. 

5. Captain Ambrose Powell Hill, born 13 March, 1785 : died 

26 Feb., 1858; married 10 Feb. (1st wife) Fannie 
Twyman, born 2y April, 1789; died 18 Sept., 1820; 
daughter of William Twyman, born in Culpeper in 
1754, and was Orderly Sergeant in the Revolution 
from 1777 to 1781, being at the seige and surrender of 
Yorktown. Captain Ambrose Hill was Captain of the 
Culpeper Minute Men during the War of 1812; mem- 
ber of the State Legislature and Senate for 20 years. 
He left issue. 

6. Ann, born 5 Oct., 1786; died 30 Sept., 1842: married Rev. 

Thornton Stringfellow. 

7. Thomas, born 3 Oct., 1789; died 5 Jan., 1857; married 

Frances R. Baptist, and was the father of the cele- 
brated Confederate General Ambrose P. Hill, born 
1825; killed at Petersburg, 2 April, 1865. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. H5 

Needles Hill, born 12 August, 1725, son of William and 
Frances Hill; married 1st Jane Morgan, by her he had a son 
Humphrey, born in 1755. It is evident he married 2nd Letitia 
Morgan, Marriage Bond, 4 Oct., 1758, who may have been a 
sister of jane. The will of William Morgan of Midd., pro- 
bated 3 April, 1764, mentions his daughter Letitia Hill and his 
son-in-law Needles Hill, who was one of the exors. Needles 
Hill had three known children, the first at least by Jane: 

1. Humphrey, born 7 April, 1755. 

2. Frances. 

3. Mary.

editor and compiler. The present volume concerns the descend- 
ants of Captain Thomas Carter, of "Barford," Lancaster, 
1652. It gives side lights on many prominent Virginia families 
and is compiled from data gathered from original public and 
private records. From our own personal acquaintance with 
the author, we can assure subscribers that they will obtain a 
book that is reliable in what it sets forth on the family history. 

We frequently receive letters from clients in which they 
say: "I wrote to the county clerk, but he did not reply. Can 
you tell me the reason?" Yes, there are several reasons. In 
the first placej the clerk is not a genealogist. He is paid to do 
the duties of his office, not to hunt pedigrees. Secondly, the 
queries as a rule are so garbled that it would require an expert 
to find out what was wanted. Finally, the old Virginia clerk 
with his courtly manners is fast disappearing, and the political 
appointee holds his office. When you find a politician who is 
willing to do some hard record searching for a few dollars, let 
us have his name. We can keep him busy ourselves.

The lax method of keeping the old records in many of the 
Virginia court houses will cost the historian dear before many 
years are past. Last May the records at Williamsburg were 
destroyed by fire. They were simply invaluable, as many of 
them were copies of wills, the originals of which had previous- 
ly been destroyed by fire at the burning of Richmond. A few 
years ago, we compiled a small book on the wills' then at 
Williamsburg. Only ioo copies were printed, so that the 
holders of copies are lucky indeed to possess one. The angel 
of fire is hovering over several other court houses that we 
wot of. 

We now possess a complete MS. copy of the old Farnham 
Parish Register, Richmond County, births, deaths and mar- 
riages from 1672 to 1800. Clients desiring copies of extracts 
may have same — for a consideration. * 

We do not send any of our printed books on Virginia on 
approval. There are too many "dead beats" hunting pedigrees 
to suit us. We would like to hear from the D. A. R. person 
living in Bardstown, Ky., who purchased a book from us 
three years ago, and to the sending of some half dozen com- 
munications, registered letters included, she does not deign to 
reply. We constantly receive orders for books on approval, 
the would-be purchasers saying they belonged to the Colonial 
Dames or the D. A. R., using these organizations as a sort of 
Bradstreet. It makes no difference to us. The rule is cash 
in advance, or no book. Unreliable persons frequently belong 
to reliable societies. We could name quite a few. 

Some ten years ago, the editor when at Amelia Court 
House copied the marriage bonds, some 350 in all. No more 
could be found, and it was supposed there were no others. 
The abstracts were published in Vol. IV. Va. County Records. 
An overhauling of the Court records was made recently and 
a number of packets of bonds was discovered. The result of 
the find is now given in the present number of the Virginia 
County Records, supplementing the previous bonds as pub- 
lished in Vol. IV. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 129 

Very few of the more recently appointed Clerks know 
much about the old records. Last summer, when at Warsaw, 
Richmond County, the Editor obtained permission to hunt 
through an old cupboard, which the Clerk assured us contained 
nothing but poll lists and papers of little value. After grub- 
bing amongst the dust of years, we had the pleasure of un- 
earthing some dozen packets of old marriage bonds, the earliest 
dating from about 1744. What we did with the find will be 
revealed in some future number of the Quarterly.

COLLEGE OE ARMS OF CANADA. 

By Edict of King Louis XIV. in 1664: Confirmed by Royal 
Commission of the Appeal of Malta of 1S77. 

Under Council of the Aryan and Scigneurial Order of the 
Empire in America. 

Memoranda. 

I. 

This College of Arms is the Official Court of Heraldic 
Registry of America, wherein armigerous right and rank are 
established and where symbols are added to the arms of those 
proven under seal, that the true may be known from the false. 

On account of the prevalence of fraud in American an- 
cestry and arms, no claims of distinction thereby are accepted 
anywhere unless the titles by which they are held are guaran- 
teed by the Heraldic Court of the College of Arms. Costly 
books on "Famous Families of America" have thus become 
so worthless by the admixture of the false with the presum- 
ably genuine, that their arms and rank are unworthy of notice, 
and if borne without warrant, are reckoned, in England and 
America, to be warrantless through inability to obtain the seal 
of the Commissioners of the Heraldic Court and the symbol 
of authentication of the College of Arms. 

II. 

No Heraldic Court will certify to descent from armigerous 
ancestry unless probative proof is given. Circumstantial evi- 
dence of bearing the same name and tradition of origin in the 
same locality, with official, gentry and proprietary condition 
in every generation of the family chain, are deemed worthy to 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 131 

give right to bear the same arms, but with a symbol of differ- 
ence to show that the right, though conceded, is circumstantial 
rather than documentary. 

In like manner, the College of Arms of Canada follows 
the same law by regarding the condition of the First American 
Ancestor as the criterion of his parental condition in Fur ope 
in the acknowledgment of traditionary and circumstantial 
armigerous descent and rank. 

Marks of Authentication. 

I. 

Families of the Baronets of Nova Scotia (signed for by 
the Earl of Galloway in 1908; of the Seigneurs of the Empire 
(represented by the Duke of Yeragua) ; of the Bannerets of 
Quebec (represented by the Baroness Dorchester, who founded 
the Dorchester decoration of the order) ; of the Seigneurs of 
Canada and Louisiana (represented by the Baron de 
Longueuil) ; of the Manorial and Titular Grantees of America 
(represented by the Brents of Maryland, next of kin to Lord 
Baltimore) ; of the Equestors of the Yellow Rose, Knights of 
the Golden Horseshoe of Virginia ; of the Royal and Military 
Order of the Mountain Eagle, etc. — all confederated in the 
Aryan and Seigneurial Order — are granted a special coronet 
over the arms, and are eligible to the Dorchester Decoration 
of the Empire in the male line, family name of any of the 
above distinctions. So are those holding matriculation papers 
from the Heraldic Courts of the Seigneurial Nobility of 
Europe. 

II. 

First Ancestor to America before 1783, who used armorial 
seal or who was put on the list for Royal Provincial Council 
by order of the King, gives Consular rank to his family; to 
whose registered descendants of family name the Court decrees 
the Consular Button of rank, with azure octofoil added to 
recorded arms. 



132 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

III. 

First Ancestor to America before 1783, who was a landed 
proprietor and military or civil officer, gives Burgess rank 
with the button, and red octofoil to such arms as circumstantial 
evidence before the College decides. 

IV. 

First Ancestor to America after 1783, who was a man of 
property and station, and acknowledged by signed and sealed 
letters of an armigerous family of Europe, duly recorded there 
to be one of themselves, gives to his registered descendants of 
the name, the button of Alumnal rank, and the green octofoil 
of authentication is added to their registered arms. 

V. 

Those receiving the Button and Diploma of the Heraldic 
Court of the College of Arms are armigers of the same, ranked 
with the Armigerous Nobility of Europe by international treat- 
ies of comity. Armigers of 16 quarterings are admitted to the 
Seigneurial Order and Decoration. 

Court Dress. 

The Seigneurial Order has its own Dress and Decoration 
of the Empire, The Armigers wear the conventional black 
dress, but with gilt buttons and epaulettes ; dress sword ; blue, 
red or green sash, rosette and button of Consular, Burgess or 
Alumnal Degree; black felt hat with gilt band; blue, red or 
green feather. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 133 

Some Provincial Families of New York ranked in the 

nobeesse of canada as bannerets of quebec 

in the Archives of the Coeeege of Arms 

of Canada. 

Compiled by the Heraed-Marshae 

Among the early members of the various orders which 
were made nobilities on the American Continent are enumer- 
ated the Caciques and Landgraves of the Carolinas, the Lords- 
Patroons of New Netherland and New York, the Seigneurs 
of Canada and Louisiana, the Lords of the Maryland and 
South Carolina Manours, the Baronets of Nova Scotia, the 
Bannerets of Quebec, the Equestors of the Yellow Rose, etc. 

The State of New York and adjoining country were rich 
in these Bannerets of Quebec. They as a body were raised to 
the rank of a nobility — a fact not known generally — and it 
gives additional interest in the statement to the great number 
living in New York who are descended from these eminent 
personages. At the present time, the English administration 
in Canada, under tutelage of that in England, wishes the fact 
to be forgotten that the Loyalists were made a nobility, or to 
be regarded as a ''fiction" of the law to be observed in the 
non-observance. But the royal ordinance remains, and the 
administration has never dared to abrogate it. The lack of 
faith in these observances of obligations, especially under the 
House of Hanover, was great enough to have caused the 
American revolt against the infringement of Colonial charters 
and constitutions in 1775 and the war for independence in 
1776, and has been great enough ever since to wish to undo the 
Loyalist Act of 1789 creating the Loyalists a nobility, which 
was done in a moment of hasty enthusiasm. This Act passed 
at Quebec under signature of the Governor-General Guy 
Carleton, Lord Dorchester, and that of his council of the Seig- 
neurs of the Country and his other advising officers declared it 
to be the intention to "put a mark of honor on those families 
that joined the Royal Standard in America in the late war" 
(1776-83). The reason for this is declared in the Act to be 
that they should be distinguished from other colonists in the 



134 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

country on account of their noble and distinguished services. 
It is but just to say that this Loyalist Act making of those 
"who joined the Royal Standard" a nobility was done by them- 
selves and their friends the Seigneurs of Canada when they 
were in possession of the government and no administration 
since has dared undo the act. Moreover, it was acknowledged 
— with bad grace, no doubt — by the King George III. But the 
English themselves failed to see in this loyalty and devotion 
any other attribute than a servile obedience to the government. 
They could not — much less their stupid and bull-headed leaders 
— appreciate the fact that the noblest of these so-called Loyal- 
ists were loyal to their colonial charters, against whose in- 
fringements most of them had stood — even against the in- 
fringements by the British parliament itself up to 1778, and 
after that time, with the parliament that had abrogated the in- 
fringements and against the revolutionists who were altering 
the colonial charters which they were claiming to defend, and 
establishing a democracy contrary to their previous pledges 
and engagements with the people of the colonies themselves. 

Had these Loyalists, loyal as they were to the colonies to 
which they belonged and to the charters of those colonies, 
instead of joining with the Crown and Parliament in 177S-83, 
united among themselves to form a party in the colonies for 
independence along the line of the meaning of the original 
charters, it can not be doubted but that their strength and in- 
fluence would have caused a better form of government to 
have been chosen than the one at present in the United States. 

A brief sketch of a few of these loyalists will show their 
importance. And their descendants, by the Loyalist Act of 
1789, have the rights of precedence as a nobility in Canada. 

Theophilact Bache, vice-president of the New York 
Chamber of Commerce in 1782, whose brother Richard married 
Sarah, daughter of Dr. Benj. Franklin, was true to the Crown. 
While the colonies were making a constitutional struggle for 
their rights, he was with Lewis and Jay, a member of the 
committee of correspondence. But when they decided to rebel 
and form a republic, he stood staunchly for his royalist prin- 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 135 

ciples. At one time the revolutionists held him a prisoner in 
New Jersey. His kindness even to adversaries in that war 
was "worthy of respect/' He died in New York in 1807. 

The Barclays of New York are mentioned as "Americans 
of royal descent. The bluest blood of New York Society is 
said to be derived mostly from Barclay affiliation. Rev. Dr. 
Henry Barclay was rector of Trinity in 1765. His daughter 
Nancy married Col. Beverly Robinson, a loyalist and father of 
Sir Frederic Robinson, of Toronto. His son, Thomas Barclay, 
was a major under Sir Henry Clinton in 1777, who left the 
country with the British, but returned and died in New York 
in 1830. He was father of Col. De Lancey Barclay, who dis- 
tinguished himself at Waterloo and was A. D. C. to King 
George IV. 

Five of the most prominent members of the Bayard family 
that claim to trace their ancestry to the same source as that 
from which arose the great chevalier Du Terrail de Bayard, 
"sans peur et sans reproche," were loyalists. In 1782 John 
Bayard was lieutenant-colonel of the King's Orange (N. Y.) 
Rangers. Robert was royal judge in admiralty in 1782 and his 
estates were confiscated by the republicans. Samuel was a 
signer to the crown in 1774 and in 1782 was major of the 
King's Orange Rangers, and his son Samuel was deputy secre- 
tary for the Crown in 1782. Samuel Vetch Bayard was a 
Crown officer and settled in New Brunswick. Col. William 
Bayard, of North River, had his property confiscated because 
of his royalist principles. 

Fourteen of the landed proprietors of the Brickerhoff 
name of Queen's Co. testified to their unalterable allegiance 
to royalty in 1776. Few in 1776 could exceed the fame of the 
Coldens, chief of whom was Cadwaller Colden, Surveyor-Gen- 
eral of the colony, and member of the King's council. He was 
lieutenant-governor in 1761. His son David, who married 
Ann, daughter of John Willett, of Flushing, had his property- 
taken by the democrats and went to England. He was father 
of Cadweller D. Colden, one of the most eminent of New York 



136 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

lawyers, who, with de Witt Clinton, promoted the Erie Canal. 
He died in Jersey City in 1834. John, another of the Coidens, 
was a loyalist captain of New Jersey Volunteers, and his rela- 
tive, Thomas Colden, was captain in the Pennsylvania Loyalist 
regiment. 

Thirteen of the Cornells of Queen's Co. acknowledged al- 
legiance to the Crown in opposition to the democrats in 1776, 
from one of whom is descended the founder of Cornell Uni- 
versity. 

In 1775, John Cruger was President of the New York 
assembly and that year addressed a letter to Gen. Gage on the 
threatened uprising of the democracy. His relative, John 
Harris Cruger, who married a daughter of Col. de Lancey, 
was a royal counsellor. His property was confiscated for his 
loyalty. 

// any colonial family deserve the term of "Noble" it is 
that of de Lancey. James de Lancey of New York was 
colonel of a loyalist regiment, and fought for the Crown, 
settled in Nova Scotia and was a member of the council of 
that colony. His cousin, James de Lancey, an officer of Oliver 
de Lancey's loyalist regiment, was afterwards collector of 
His Majesty's Customs at New Providence. Oliver de Lancey 
whose brother James was at one time chief-justice and Lieut- 
Gov. of New York and whose father was of the French no- 
blesse, became a general on the side of the Crown. He went to 
England at the close of the war and was a member of parlia- 
ment. His daughter married Sir Wm. Draper. His son Oliver, 
Jr., was Adj. -Gen. in the British Army. His cousin, Stephen, 
was a loyalist colonel and afterwards chief-justice of the 
Bahamas. His wife was a daughter of Dr. Barclay of New 
York, and their son was an A. D. C. to Lord Wellington at 
Waterloo. 

The de Peysters have continued at the head of affairs. 
Their descent from the counts de Tourhaute in the Nether- 
lands and the claim that family have on that title, rank them 
with the colonial nobility. Capt. Abram de Peyster was sec- 
ond in command of the King's troops at the Battle of King's 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 137 

Mountain in 1780. Kis life was saved in that battle by a gold 
doubloon in his pocket shielding him from a republican bullet. 
He went to St. John in 1783 and was colonel of the New 
Brunswick militia and treasurer of that province. His rela- 
tive, Capt. Frederic de Peyster, of the New York loyalists 
went also to St. John where he received a grant of land and 
was a magistrate. He returned to New York where he died 
in 1828. From him was descended the late Frederic de 
Peyster, LL.D., President of the New York Historical So- 
ciety and father of the late Gen. John Watts de Peyster, the 
noted author on military topics who was also a member of the 
United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada. 

At the house of James Graham, of Ulster County, a num- 
ber of the adherents of King George met in 1775 and raised 
a royal standard on a staff seventy feet high. On the staff 
was the following inscription : "In testimony of our unshaken 
loyalty and incorruptible fidelity to the best of kings: of our 
inviolable attachment to the parent state and to the British 
constitution: of our abhorrence. . .of a republican government 
. . .seditions meeting and execrable mobs. . .this stand is erected 
by a number of His Majesty's most faithful subjects in Ulster 
County on the 10th February, in the 15th year of the reign of 
our most excellent sovereign, King George III." This family 
of Graham claim descent from a younger son of the Duke 
of Montrose. 

The Harpers of Queens Co. who suffered for their loy- 
alty were represented by James and Thomas. From this 
family are descended the Harper brothers who have established 
one of the greatest publishing houses in the World. 

In 17&2, Francis Kearney was major in the Pennsylvania 
loyalist regiment and Michael Kearney was searcher in the 
superintendent's department of New. York under the Crown. 
Gen. Philip Kearney came of this stock and was related to the 
de Peysters. 

Twenty-two of the Laivrences of Queen's were royalist 
associates from 1776 to 1779. One of them was a colonel and 
another was a captain under the Crown. A large estate in 



138 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

England was in the property of this family and some sort of 
connection existed between them and the Hydes, Earls of 
Clarendon. 

There were more of the great Livingston family for roy- 
alty than for republicanism in 1776. Their descent from a 
noble Scottish house; their possession of the manour of Liv- 
ingston on the Hudson ; their connection with persons and 
things high and ennobling must have had their due weight. 
Henry Livingston was an officer of royalist cavalry in South 
Carolina in 1782. John, Jr., was seized by the republicans 
at Jamaica, N. Y., in 1776 for his royalist principles and 
made a prisoner. Gilbert was a captain in the American Loy- 
alist Legion. John was a captain in the King's American Regi- 
ment and Philip was a Crown officer in 1780 at New Y^ork. 

Roger Morris, one of the manorial family of that name, 
whose wife was a daughter of Frederic Philipse, had served in 
the French war on staff of Gen. Braddock. In 1775 he was a 
royal counsellor. He was a colonel under the Crown. His 
large estate in New York was not entirely confiscated, for his 
son, Capt. Henry Gage Morris, R. N., in 1809 in behalf of 
his tw r o sisters and himself sold their revisionary interest to 
John Jacob Astor for £20,000 sterling, for which Mr. Astor 
received from the state of New Y 7 ork $500,000 in 1828. 
Another son was Capt. Amherst Morris, so named for his 
god-father Lord Amherst. It is said that Washington came 
a-courting Mrs. Morris when she was Miss Philipse but he 
was not deemed an eligible parti. 

Among the leading members of the Ogdens who were 
true to the Crown in 1776, were the Hon. Benjamin Ogden 
of Westchester Co. ; Isaac, barrister at New Y^ork ; Jonathan 
of whom it was written that he was "Among the faithful 
and intrepid band of loyalists, who for their unshaken attach- 
ment to the throne and constitution of Great Britain suffered 
much in their early days." Peter, who was secretary of the 
New York Police Department in 1782; the Hon. Robert, at 
one time President cf the New Jersey Assembly and last the 
most illustrious of all, the Hon. David Ogden, Royal Coun- 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 139 

sellor, judge of the N. J. Supreme Court and member of the 
N. J. Loyalist Society of 1779. He planned the outline of a 
government for America. It was as follows : "That the right 
of taxation of America by the British Parliament be given up: 
that the colonies be restored to their former constitutions; that 
each colony have a governor and council appointed by the 
Crown and a house of representatives elected by the free- 
holders : that an American parliament be established, to con- 
sist of a Lord-Lieutenant, Barons (to be created for the pur- 
pose by His Majesty) : a house of commons to be elected 
by the assemblies of the various colonies: which parliament to 
be styled 'The Lord Lieutenant, the Lords and Commons of 
the British Colonies of North America.' " 

The Philipscs were among the founders of New York. 
Frederic Philipse came from Holland in 1658, bringing money, 
plate and jewels and the patents of two patroon-lordships 
on the Hudson, called Philipsbourg and Fredericksbourg. The 
former contained 150 square miles, the latter 240. He owned 
many houses in the city ; he laid out lots and streets and built 
a town residence. His four children were Frederic, Philip, 
Susan married to Col. Beverly Robinson and Mary married 
to Col. Roger Morris. The son Frederic was a colonel and a 
member of the provincial assembly. In 1775 he attended a 
republican meeting only to declare that his purpose in coming 
was "To protest against its illegal and unconstitutional pro- 
ceedings." He retired to England later on rather than see a 
republic established. His nephews and nieces inherited the 
property. 

The Hon. John Rapalje of New York, was a royal signer 
in 1775 as well as sixteen others of the name living in Queen's 
Co. 

Jacob Schureman was so inimical to republican institu- 
tions that he left New York in 1783 and settled in Prince Ed- 
ward's Island. From him is descended Mr. Schureman of the 
Philippine Commission. The family claim the title of baron 
von Schureman, deriving it from a German ancestor. 



140 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 

The Hon. Peter Tenbroeck was a royal signer in 1775 : 
he was magistrate of Tryon, Montgomery Co., N. Y. 

Richard Towns-end, of North Hempstead was a dis- 
tinguished royalist in 1782. Twenty-two of the name in 
Queen's testified their allegiance to Lord Howe in 1776. John, 
magistrate at Oyster Bay and Benj., an ensign of the New 
York Loyalist Regiment, completes this family's list: 

Of the old Knickerbocker Vans, there were Joost Van 
Brunt of Jamaica ; the leader of the Van Buskirks among them, 
Col. Abram, who commanded the N. Y. Loyalist Regiment; 
Anthony Van Dam ; James Van Deusen ; Lieut. Wm. Van 
Dumont ; Col. Gabriel de Veber of the Prince of Wales' 
American Regiment ; Gabriel and Capt. Wm. Van Horn and 
thirteen Van Nostrands of Queen's Co. The name of Van 
Courtlandt, replete with the glories of colonial belongings 
and manorial dignities stands prominently forth. Hon. Philip 
Van Courtlandt of Westchester, was a major in the N. Y. 
Loyalist Regiment in 1782. One of his daughters married 
Sir Edward Buller, R. N., and another, Capt. Evans, of the 
British Army. One of the sons, Philip, Jr., was an ensign 
in his father's regiment. The home of the race, Courtlandt 
Manour, is one of the most famous in America, and is the 
only patroonate in possession of the original family. 

The Hon. Peter Van Shaack of Kinderhook, was obliged 
to seek shelter in England on account of his royalist views. 
He returned to New Y'ork after 1783 and became a leading 
member of the legal profession. He died in New York in 
1832, and an account of his life was published by his son. 

Nearly all of the Watts were royalists. They were con- 
nected with the Earls of Cassilis in Scotland. The Hon. John 
Watts, Royal Counsellor of N. Y., had a daughter married to 
Sir John Johnson, and his son served in the loyalist corps 
raised by Sir John. His relatives, George and George, Jr., 
of Queen's, were royal signers in 1776. 

It is natural that the Zabriskies should have been on 
the same side since they claim descent from the Kings of 
Poland. The most prominent of them in 1776 was Hon. 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 141 

John Zabriskie, magistrate, whose estate in New Jersey was 
taken by the republican congress and given to Baron von 
Steuben in reward for services. Peter Zabriskie was on the 
loyalist correspondence committee in 1774.

144 VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 

as "Chief Regent,' of Dr. J. G. B. Bulloch, Pursuyvant of the 
College of Arms of Canada, who was present and conducted 
the meeting. The Hon. Thomas Scott Forsyth, Registrar- 
General of the College of Arms of Canada, was the guest 
of the evening. 

At the meeting was announced the opening of the Seign- 
eurial Court and Council to take place at Montreal, Sept. 10- 
15, 1912, at which all families capable of registering in the 
manorial, titular, consular, burgess or alumnal rank of the 
College of Arms of Canada are entitled to be represented in 
the imperial pageantry of that occasion. For that purpose 
committees are being formed of ladies and gentlemen in the 
various states under the leadership of Dr. Bulloch, 2122 P 
St., N. W., Washington, D. C. 

Each family after registering its rank and pedigree in 
the College of Arms of Canada and receiving its diploma and 
certificate prepares its own banner to be borne in the pageantry. 
The pole of the banner is 6 feet long, covered with gilt paper. 
The cross-piece is 2 feet long, covered the same, and fastened 
to the pole 6 inches from the top. The cloth on which the 
family arms is painted is 2 feet square and the family shield 
is 1 foot wide by i}4 feet deep. The color of the cloth is 
the same as the most prominent object in the family shield. 
The octofoil of rank is painted at the base of the family shield 
and again in a 6 square inch space at the right corner of the 
banner itself. 

In the march past the throne in the great edifice in Mon- 
treal where this court is held, the members of each family 
present march with their own banner in line to be presented 
and then to their seats reserved for them. The men dress 
according to the rule published in last issue and the women 
and children according to choice, but with their appropriate 
sashes, etc. 

The imperial order of programme is led by the Bearer 
of the Sword of State; then comes the Bearer of the Sceptre 
of Dominion ; then the Imperial Standard of Charles V of 
1540. Under a canopy on a litter borne by four beautiful 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS 145 

daughters of the Seigneurs repose the Crown of Empire with 
the Scroll of Laws tied with yellow, blue, red and green rib- 
bons. The military orchestra play the Imperial March. Then 
follow the Seigneurial, armorial, titular, consular, burgess 
and alumnal families with their banners. When they arrive 
at their places the Crown, Sceptre and Scroll are deposited at 
the top of the throne. The military salute of swords is given. 
The Imperial Hymn, "God Save the Emperor," is chanted in 
Latin, while incense is burnt, and the interesting ceremonies 
begin. This will be the most illustrious assemblage ever held 
in America, since it will be that of the families that founded 
the feudal and splendid civilization of Europe in America under 
the Crown and according to the institutions of the ancient 
empire.

EDITED BY 
WILLIAM ARMSTRONG CROZIER, F.G.S.A. 



With the December, 1912. issue of the "Virginia County 
Records Quarterly," it will cease to be issued in magazine 
form, and we shall revert to our initial method of publishing 
single volumes of the Virginia records. From now on, our 
books will be privately published and issued to subscribers only. 

The new series will consist of 100 copies of each volume, 
and the price will be $10 net, per volume. Your special atten- 
tion is called to the small number of copies to be printed, and 
in order to avoid disappointment, it would be advisable to send 
in your subscription promptly, as sixty-one subscribers have 
already been obtained previous to this announcement. 

A continued subscription for all forthcoming volumes of 
the new Series as they appear from the press, will take prece- 
dence to the subscription for one volume only, and such single 
order will be filled only in the event of 100 continued sub- 
scribers being unobtainable, an event, however, which we do 
not anticipate. 

The counties covered by the new Series comprise some of 
the oldest and most important in Virginia. In order to make 
a connected and complete family history from this section, it 
has been found from experience that the records in all the 
counties enumerated below must be examined. 

The first book is now on the press, and is devoted to 
Westmoreland county. The wills and deeds for each county 
will be brought up to the year 1850. The necessary data for 
the books mentioned below has already been collected, and it 
is our intention to publish two to three books each year. Data 
for other volumes, notably on Northumberland, Stafford, FCing 
George and Prince William counties is already being collected 
and will appear in due course.

NOTES ON THE COWHERD AND TWYMAN 
FAMILIES. 

(Contributed) 
THE COWHERD FAMILY. 

In 1066, when William the Conqueror skimmed the cream 
of his country, culled out the most energetic of warmen, gath- 
ered around him the nobles and knights of Normandy and all 
France, marched into England, killed King Harold and took 
possession of England, "he built on the spot where Harold 
fell" an abbey in memory of his triumph, which he named 
Battle Abbey. It was intended for 140 Benedictine monks. In 
this abbey was preserved by the monks a so-called "Roll oi 
Battle Abbey," believed to be a list of those eminent persons 



VIRGINIA COUNTY RECORDS. 89 

who accompanied the Conqueror to England. The English 

historian, Rev. Joseph Hunter, believed this roll was of those 

only who brought families. Hollinshed and Stow each had 

copies, but they were not alike. However this may be, in on*. 

list, at least, will be found the names De Montague, De Buford, 

De Lacy, De Colbie, Twimyn and De Co-wert (later Co- ward 

and finally Coward and Cowherd). 

i . v 

. | History tells us that when the army of the Conqueror 

\ came to England it brought the Norman fashion of naming a 

rich man from his property and a poor man from his trade. 
Thus these men got their names from Beaufort Castle, Monte- 
cute or Montague Castle. Roger de Colbie (Colby) owned 
the estate and village of Colbie. William de Cowert owned 
the village of La Cowert. Take almost any of the first settlers 
of Virginia and you will find the name spelled in several dif- 
ferent ways — Barbor, Barber and finally Barbour. So with 
Colbie, Colby ; Cowert, Coward, Cowhard, Cowherd and even 
Choward (see "British Family Names and Their Meaning"). 

Both Burke and Sir Henry St. George, in their ''Armory" 
and "Visitations," give the same arms and crest for the Cow- 
ard or Cowherd family, as follows : Arms — Azure on a chev- 
ron gules 3 martlets or ; on a chief of the second, a cannon of 
the third. Crest — A demigrayhound sable, holding between 
his paws a stag's head argent, attired or. 

Sir Henry St. George, in his "Visitation of West Penard, 
Somersetshire, England," gives the above arms, crest and 
pedigree of the family of John Coward. From that family 
came Jonathan Coward to Virginia. His son, Jonathan, mar- 
ried a Miss Colby and had several children, one of which was 
■ James, who changed the spelling to Cowherd. His name as an 
officer in the War of the Revolution is on record at the War 
Department, and is spelled both ways. He was a man of large 
estate in several counties in Virginia. Mr. Crozier, in his 
"Virginia County Records," Vol. 1, mentions him a number of 
times in lists of deeds given for various tracts of land sold by 
him in Spotsylvania county, Va., in 1734; witnesses were his

friends, Robert Slaughter and Zachary Taylor. The same 
writer states that he served three years in the Continental 
Line. He was vestryman many years of St. Mark's Parish.
